Don't even THINK about flashing your phone until you have done more reading and understand things a bit more, otherwise its a disaster waiting to happen.

As for your question, the other gig of stuff is mostly rubbish/bloatware that a lot of people don't want on their phone.

but when you look into CM its a Raw android, you just have every thing you need.

On the raw 160 M you must add the Gapps (google applications ) that are some 230 M. this lead to 400 Meg that is the minimum that can be reached by removing all the real Samsung bloat ware or so called!
